    It is within easy reach of Central Station, shopping centres, public transport. Helpful staff.

    Being on a main road it suffered from traffic noise especially as there were only single glazing windows.

    The buffet breakfast was plentiful and staff friendly. The price was very reasonable.

    Horror of horrors there was no mattress cover on the bed-this is unforgivable and I cant imagine how any hotel could function hygenically without mattress protection. :(

    There is not a single thing I could complain about in this hotel! The staff were helpful and very friendly, the room (a twin) was extremely clean and spacious with two double beds and provided everything I needed for my stay. Its location is superb, only a short walk from everything I was there for including the SECC and the St Enochs Centre. The buffet breakfast included in the price was excellent also, no complaints whatsoever.

    Nothing to mention here at all, in fact I've already booked another stay at this hotel.

    I was on foot so the short distance to the train station was crucial. It was convenient for buses and many attractions as well. It is a yesteryear posh hotel, lots of space in the room and a nice guest lounge. The morning breakfast was plentiful and far ranging, and the staff was efficient and helpful. I was in a "refurbished room" and the bathroom was especially elegant.

    However, the bed seemed to be ancient, lumpy and worn out. Too bad, since the linens were quite nice. Fortunately I was so tired from all my walking that I slept anyway. The only other complaint is that the Internet did not work in my room, and only worked in the lounge. I heard from another guest the same complaint. The hotel is on the fringes of a creepy part of town. I tried to get inside before dark. But considering the location and the value, this was an acceptable place to stay.

    Value for money was amazing. Breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts for value I have had. Room was faultless. Reception could do with a revamp. It was not the best impression on arrival.

    Ideally located for Station,Shops and Resteraunts. He was extremely good value for money.

    There was nothing to complain about.
